Next Club Meeting: WMAC Annual Auction Night - Wednesday 30th July 2014

sold_small.gif The Annual Club Auction will be held on Wednesday 30th July 2014 at the Belmont Memorial Hall, starting at 8.00pm.  Click here for a map showing the location of the hall.
Bring along all your spare parts, surplus adio gear and motors, dormant, repairable, or never-completed models and kits, modelling magazine collections (already read several times?!!), tools of all sorts, battery chargers, etc. PLUS, bring your own 'Wish List'!!!
IF YOU'VE GOT STUFF TO AUCTION PLEASE PRE-REGISTER IT NOW, and save yourself (and us) time on the night.  A pre-registration form can be downloaded here, and you can send in more than one form if you discover more stuff later!!  Completed form should be emailed to the WMAC Treasurer :  treasurer@wmac.org.nz, by 9.00am on Auction Day.
Registrations will be open on the night from 7.15pm onwards, but we'll be unable to pre-advertise these items.  "Reserve" sale prices may be placed on items if you wish, but will remain un-disclosed.
There are only two simple auction rules:
  1. All items are on a "cash and carry" basis, with sellers being paid out on the night.
  2. The auctioneer's hammer fall is final!
Come to the Auction, and join us for a fun evening!!

Indoor Flying:  Friday 8th August 2014.
Please note:  There will be a $10 per Pilot, $5 per spectator entry charge to cover hall rental.

The Club enjoys a strong following of more than one hundred members who fly radio-controlled planes, gliders (slope and thermal soaring), helicopters, as well as a small group of dedicated free flight and control-line enthusiasts.  Competitions in various model classes such as aerobatics, scale, pylon, and vintage are held throughout the year.

A warm welcome is extended to past, present and potential members.  Please come to our next monthly club meeting (everyone is welcome at our club meetings, whether you are a member or not), or visit one of our flying fields, to meet us and learn more about how you can learn to fly.

The Club meets at 8pm on the last Wednesday of each month (except November and December) at the Belmont Memorial Hall, Lower Hutt.  Meetings are informal and usually have a particular focus, a guest speaker or workshop session.

Belmont Memorial Hall is situated adjacent on the eastern side of State Highway 2 (Western Hutt Road) adjacent to Belmont School.  Please note: Vehicle access to the hall parking area is from Fairway Drive, not SH 2.
